Iress appoints head of corporate development and infrastructure

Iress today announced the appointment of Warwick Angus to the newly-created role of head of corporate development and market infrastructure.

The role will have responsibility for driving and delivering the strategy to grow and scale market infrastructure in Australia, beginning with leveraging the combined expertise of OneVue and Iress to deliver end-to-end unlisted investment capability. OneVue was acquired by Iress in November last year.

Mr Walsh said: “I’m delighted to announce the appointment of Warwick to this critical role.

“Our acquisition of OneVue represents a unique opportunity to combine Iress’ technology footprint with OneVue’s market-leading managed fund admin business. Our offering will provide open infrastructure to enable the industry and investors to transact and report seamlessly, improve efficiency and transparency and cost for all participants, and to promote innovation.

“I have been impressed with Warwick’s ability to garner the support of the financial services industry and am pleased to secure his expertise in realising this significant opportunity.”

Prior to joining Iress, Mr Angus held similar senior roles at AMP, Computershare and EY as well as operating his own consulting and advisory firm.

Mr Angus will report to Iress CEO Andrew Walsh and his appointment to the role is effective immediately.
